Tal Schneider covers the Israeli political scene, Israeli foreign policy, the U.S.-Israel relationship, Middle East diplomacy, and the Jewish world. Between 2004 and 2009, she served as Ma’ariv’s Washington, D.C. correspondent. Her political blogs have won her the 2012 Google Digital Excellence in Journalism Award and the 2015 Ometz Award for courage in the public sphere. Before embarking on her career in journalism, Schneider worked as a media lawyer in Israel’s leading media law firm, where she was responsible for censorship cases, gag-orders, and libel court litigation. She is a founder and board member of Israel’s Journalism Association, a founding member of Israel Women Reporters Society, and a frequent commentator on Israeli radio and television. She is also a frequent visitor to the United States and will be covering the 2020 presidential campaign (including primaries and both national conventions).
Ms. Schneider’s talk is co-sponsored by the Jewish Studies Sequence, the department of Religious Studies, the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies, and Hillel of the Claremont Colleges.
